It is with great sadness that Foo Fighters confirm the cancellation of all upcoming tour dates in light of the staggering loss of our brother Taylor Hawkins. We’re sorry for and share in the disappointment that we won’t be seeing one another as planned. Instead, let’s take this time to grieve, to heal, to pull our loved ones close, and to appreciate all the music and memories we’ve made together.
The band was due to tour heavily this year in celebration of its 25th anniversary and myriad new projects. In addition to scores of arena, stadium, and amphitheater gigs, the band was due to headline a number of notable music festivals including New Orleans, LA’s New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival; Boston, MA’s Boston Calling; Daytona Beach, FL’s Welcome To Rockville; Montreal, Quebec’s Osheaga Festival; Sacramento, CA’s Aftershock; Memphis, TN’s Beale Street Music Festival; and more. They were also due to perform at the upcoming Grammy Awards on Sunday, April 3rd in Las Vegas.
Hawkins served as the drummer for the Dave Grohl-fronted group since 1997. Prior to his time in Foo Fighters, Hawkins was the drummer for Alanis Morissette. As of now, it remains unclear what the future holds for Foo Fighters.
While not surprising given Hawkins’ crucial role in the group, the tour cancellation cuts particularly deep for fans of the Foo Fighters—a band that has often made headlines for its rabid touring appetite. The band has been first in line to get back out on the road at virtually every stage of the music industry’s return from pandemic-imposed shutdowns. In 2021, Foo Fighters welcomed large-scale shows back to New York City (with a show at Madison Square Garden on 6/20/21) and Los Angeles (with a late-August show, after an initially scheduled July reopening performance at The Forum was postponed due to COVID-19 in the band’s touring team). Less than a month ago, when international touring acts were finally cleared to return to Australia, Foo Fighters announced and performed a stadium show Down Under in a span of two weeks.
Our hearts ache for the Foo Fighters family and all who knew and loved Taylor Hawkins.
